Mayhem ensued as Manila’s most stylish got Carrie-d away at the sight of Sarah Jessica Parker as she graced the grand opening/blessing of The SM Store in SM Aura Premier yesterday afternoon. Decked in a sleek black dress frosted with a pair of dazzling diamond bracelets (and her Manolos, of course), the Sex and the City star looked regal and radiant and still very much like the Carrie Bradshaw we loved for over a decade.
Yes, the woman behind the words “Shopping is my cardio” is now the face of The SM Store, the hottest luxury fashion destination located at SM Aura Premier, the newest shopping address in Taguig City.
“I am very thrilled, honored, and flattered to be asked to represent The SM Store. Fashion is something I’m completely familiar with and obviously there’s a lot of excitement about this destination, starting with the enormous shoe department,” says the 48-year old Hollywood actress. Looking back at her role as Carrie Bradshaw, Sarah Jessica admits that although it did influence her to make bolder choices when it comes to fashion, she still likes to keep it low-key on regular days. Well, she’s a mom after all, which makes her all the more perfect for the brand’s target market.
When asked about what she thinks of Manila, the fashion icon has nothing but kind words to say. “I love it! I’ve never been here before and I hope that this is the first of many visits that I get to make. I think it’s an amazing city, I know that there’s so much else to see. I really enjoyed my time here, the food, and everybody’s been so kind.” To show her appreciation, the actress reportedly donated $100,000 to the less fortunate communities of Taguig through SM Foundation. Such a humbling (and very much stylish!) feat, don't you think?
